Ethics Faculty Mentors

Mark Doorley, Ph.D.

Boston College, 1996
Director and Assistant Professor of Ethics

E-mail:  mark.doorley@villanova.edu

Dr. Doorley's dissertation analyzed the role that feelings play in the process of making choices. This analysis was heavily influenced by the work of Bernard Lonergan, a thinker who sought to understand Thomism in light of both the advances of 20th century science and the insights of phenomenology and existentialism.  Dr. Doorley teaches a service-learning ethics course that integrates the service experience of students with the issues emerging in their discussion of ethical theories.  He also teaches a regular course in collaboration with an engineering professor on ethical and social issues related to professional engineering.  Recently, his reading and writing have been on professional ethics, generally, and leadership ethics in particular.

Dr. Getek’s research interests involve various issues within the fields of theological ethics and Catholic moral theology.  In particular, much of her work pursues questions of virtue ethics as they apply to justice, punishment, and prisons. Catholic Social Teaching, especially the concept of the common good, figures importantly in her teaching and writing.
